Trey and Sam

Today we went to photograph Trey and Sam at Chewacla State park and couldn’t ask for better morning weather and Fall colors. Combine this with the fact how fun they were, and it turned into a really great mini-adventure in the park. Just like Dora the explorer, we went over the bridge, crossed the river (now…

Photographing the Tompkins’

Today we met Holly, Gerald and little precious Emilee and went downtown Auburn for some family photos. We of course took more than three, but those should be sufficient for now to satisfy the curiosity to see the rest. After lots of smiles, short walk and plenty of M&M’s, we were done and done. But enough…

Bryan and Katie

Speaking of an elaborate plan to make the perfect proposal. Bryan did it! And Bryan did good! To the point where Katie, THE ONE, did not suspect anything. She did not even know Bryan was in town! So what was her surprise to see their dog running towards her with a sign on the neck…

Andrea and Bryan

Today we photographed Andrea ad Bryan’s engagement in Opelika. We went to the First United Methodist Church where we took Andrea’s “bridal” photos. The reason “bridal” is in quotes, is because we kind of ditched the tradition and took the photos in her mom’s and her grand mom’s wedding dresses. I have to say, I absolutely loved her look…

Brittany at the Arboretum

Today’s beautiful day was simply perfect to go to the Arboretum and take the “outdoor” part of Brittney’s senior portraits. There were so many places where we could take photos that it was kind of distracting.

Smiles and laughs for Christmas cards

This Fall is exceptionally warm and it has brought to Auburn colors that are usually associated with the Midwest – warm red, yellow, orange, green, brown and everything in between. So what a better setting for Christmas cards than this could anyone ask for? The only missing element for such a photoshoot would be abundance of cuteness……

The idea was to start from the…

Back to the film days

Couple of days ago we received the processed film images from our photoshoot in downtown Auburn.
